From Stairwell to Underpass: Urban Identity and Borderlands in Swedish Adolescent Fiction

Abstract [en]

The aim of this paper is to examine the relationship between female characters and the city of Stockholm in Swedish young adult literature from the turn of the twentieth century to the present day. It is my intention to incorporate the so often overlooked genre in a discussion about city representations, urban identity and social intersections. Particular attention is given to the urban movements of young women in literature from three different periods, the early twentieth century, the 1950’s and the beginning of the 21st century. Focusing on the works of three Swedish authors, Helena Nyblom (1843-1926), Martha Sandwall-Bergström (1913-2000) and Malin Isaksson (1972-), I will argue that the various spaces of Stockholm are used to illustrate a process of maturity and a development of the protagonists’ identity.
